Ceramic Sculpture: THUNDERBIRD
Compared to yesterday's post, this may push people away, but we need this kind of toughness in our life as well in my opinion. Thunderbird, a mystic bird that represents power and rebirth, is a new symbol of transgender among the Native Americans. A prairie rattlesnake is another symbol of power and rebirth, but it is of the grassland, where my friend, the model for this piece, has her root.
Eight Little Buddhas
Here are Little Buddhas, each carrying a different symbolic item. Hopefully they all will bring a smile to your face.
Little Buddha of Enlightenment
Of course, I wanted to make an Asian angel in this series. Angel wings symbolize many things across different cultures. I chose "Enlightenment" from them. Hope you all are staying cool in this hot summer.
Two More LITTLE BUDDHAS
What else will go well with my Little Buddhas? A blow fish? A salamander? I'm playing as I'm thinking of the option.
